** Sign. ** Planet for Astrology

Jupiter

In Astrology, Jupiter and Jupiter Signs are the planet of good luck, optimism, success and generosity. Jupiter brings joy to life. Think expansiveness and abundance, as Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter signifies knowledge, higher learning, breadth of vision, confidence, charity and good-will, frankness and honesty. Jupiter’s knowledge is on a philosophical level (as opposed to Mercury’s day-to-day cleverness). It is the broad view of the higher mind.

Psychologically, Jupiter is the search for meaning or truth. As such, it represents law and justice, philosophy, religion, metaphysics, and education. Jupiter encompasses the urge for self-improvement through participation in the larger whole. It urges you to go forth exploring life. Jupiter’s sign indicates what you idealize, what your ethical, religious, and philosophical standards are. The sign also indicates where you express expansiveness, where you do things on a large scale. Jupiter in your chart shows where you are likely to receive financial and material benefits, and in turn, where you express generosity to others. The House of Jupiter is where we tend to be optimistic, and the affairs of that House usually flow easily. Jupiter’s qualities include benevolence (kindness), wisdom, morality, and spirituality. If negatively placed in the chart, Jupiter’s energy can be manifested as self-righteousness, excessiveness, squandering, exaggeration, over-indulgence, superficiality, and bigotry. However, even when negatively positioned, Jupiter is protective and beneficial. Over-indulgence and excess often lead to learning the lesson of restraint. Even with a negatively-aspected Jupiter, a person will tend to “land on their feet” when problems arise in the areas signified by Jupiter’s House.

In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of faith, positivism, hope, and morality. It rules Sagittarius and is exalted in Cancer. Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, versus contraction (as represented by Saturn), and the aspirations of the higher self. This could include a sense of humor, good will, or mercy. On the flip side, Jupiter can also be associated with irresponsibility in the form of blind optimism and overindulgence. Its position in the chart indicates how one’s faith, generosity, and tolerance will be expressed, as well as what modes of activity will stimulate self-confidence and wisdom.

Below are some of the key traits of each sign of each zodiac sign.

Jupiter in Aries Sign

They feel good (Jupiter) when you take the initiative (cardinal). They develop in areas that deal with physical energy and activity. However, it has to happen fast, or they will get bored and give up (fire). They like to get the big picture (Jupiter), but it is something to need quickly (urgent). They need to guard against being too generous or against gambling.

With Jupiter in Aries, they are enthusiastic, assertive, energetic, and filled with countless ideas on how to grow, promote, start, or expand the ideas which fill your head. They’re opinionated and can be very persuasive in getting people to go along with your plans and ideas. They like dealing with the big picture and have leadership qualities. Need to learn patience and to think before they act is probable. Their tendency to promise more than you can deliver should be watched. Tolerance of others people’s ideas and viewpoints should also be developed. They have the ability to sell things, ideas, material goods, philosophies.

You are generous with your possessions and share freely what you have, but only if the cause merits such action. Your nature tends to be a bit extravagant or self-indulgent and it is up to you to control your desire nature. You may be stubborn in your philosophical or religious beliefs, needing proof of anything before believing. There is a fear of sickness and pain.
